    No Pillowcases? You say?

    Planning on El Pueblito in a few months, but someone said to bring pillowcases... never heard of pillows not having cases!

    Also, how about lounge chairs? Are they taken as quickly as I have read and should I bring my own beach towel, or do they supply towels?

    If we want to go to the city or nearby malls... does a bus or shuttle stop at the hotel?

    New to this... so would appreciate any info.

    Thanks a lot !!


    :lol:

    beach chairs do go really quickly! so the early bird... They provide towels at a small deposit. the bus also stops right outside the el pueblito.

    If you are all inclusive they give you a card and you take the card to a little hut out by the pool, give them your card and they give you a towel. Once you take the towel back you will then get your card back. What I did was just keep the beach towel because they do run out of those also and just used it for the week. I did bring my own beach towel also but it got alcohol spilled on it...so that's when I went and got a towel. Beach chairs are easy to find if you lay down beside them...when they leave just ask them to tell you and you can get them. Not too difficult to get them. Bus drivers are crazy....make sure you find a seat or you'll be flying all over the place...hahahaha :) Let me know if you need to know anything else...just got back on the 20th of March! PM me.

    I just got back from the El Publito and I loved it. The food on the buffet was great but the A La Carte restaurant (mexican night) was disgusting. The maids, bartenders and animation staff were great....kept us very entertained all day. Forget about getting a beach chair unless you are there at 6AM...otherwise it is really tough.....my room was really nice-huge with ocean view. The only weird thing was one day we can back to our room and our bedside lamp had disappeared. They brought us another one-but it had no light bulb......

    okay I LOVED the El Pueblito!!!! Our room was nice.. room 5112... when we walked out of our room the slide was right there so we just hopped on and rode it down to the pool ;) hehe Our TV worked well (found that out when I was stuck in the room all day due to my allergicness lol) Food wasn't that good...but you'll have that. The staff was WONDERFUL... Wilberth and Marco were my favorites!! Definately chat up Marco at the pool bar and he will take care of you all week. Make him do a shot with you and he will do this chant thing thats fun! Also the front desk people were sooo nice along with security... the head of security took us down to the beach the one night to see the sea turtles (I think he wanted my friend Brit though so that might be why... he told her she could run around the beach naked if she wanted to :shock: ) But seriously the pools were awesome and I really loved this place. I would definately go back...

    I think it will be just fine.. They've been open for a while, just not at 100%.. I'm sure, by spring break, they will be up to date.

    Current conditions?

    Has anyone stayed at El Pueblito yet in 2006? Can you give us information regarding the hotel and beach conditions?

    :cool: On my way in 85 days!!

    good news, this video shows a nicely sized, rolling beach outside of el pueblito as of november 25, 2005. so by now, the beach is probably ok outside of the hotel. im glad to see this!

    Got a call from my travel agent today, and she stated that El Pueblito will be opening back up March 1, 2006, but with minor renovations taking play maybe until may, but at least in april... All entertainment will be relocated to the pool area also..

    Is it completely closed? Travel adjent said it was only half open. It doesn't effect me, but that's what I was told.

    We go there May 17th.

    Hey CanCun Canuck - please see if you can find any absolutes on the El Pueblito for all of us with future reservations prior to May 1st. We're booked for April 26 thru May 3 (which could be a problem :shock: if they're not opening until May 1st!!) and I didn't book thru a travel agent. I used the web site "CancunTravel.com" and hopefully wasn't mislead!! Oh, worry, worry, worry... :lurker:

    Sunny Stace,
    I would get an email off to your website, it's pretty definite that it won't open until May 1st. You weren't mislead, they did plan to open for March 1st, though like other hotels they are probably having issues with supplies being available and possibly insurance payments coming through for them. Good luck!
